Pain is a frequent and significant problem related to cancer-directed treatment in children. Children with cancer often cite needle procedures as the most distressing experience caused by cancer and its treatment. Recently it has been shown that an interactive humanoid robot is capable of facilitating distraction and reducing distress during childhood immunizations. Our research objectives are to: (1) assess the feasibility of implementing the robot (Medi-Port) for effectiveness testing in a future RCT (measured as implementation outcomes) and (2) determine treatment effectiveness estimates (measured as preliminary effectiveness outcomes), compared to standard medical care.
